Actor Colin Hanks Plays Not My Job

Play associated audio

Back in 2005, we interviewed actor Tom Hanks. Today, we interview his son, actor Colin Hanks. Colin's daughter was born this year, so to keep the streak going, we've got to stay on the air long enough for her to grow up and get her own TV show.

We've invited Colin to play a game called "'Till Death Do We Part ... Or At Least Until I Get A Better Offer." Kim Kardashian is getting a lot of grief for filing for divorce after only 72 days of marriage, but compared with some other celebrity weddings, she and her husband practically grew old together. Hanks will answer three questions about other short-lived celebrity marriages.

Now nations are hammering out an even broader set of goals for 2030, but this time the task is proving highly controversial. The Millennium Development Goals were drafted in a highly casual way and that simple process proved the key to their success.
